The mission of the CFDMC is to develop and promote healthcare emergency preparedness and response capabilities in the East Central Florida Domestic Security Task Force Region 5 (RDSTF Region 5), including the following nine counties: Brevard, Indian River, Lake, Martin, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, St. Lucie, and Volusia
The CFDMC will facilitate healthcare and other partners in working together collaboratively to build, strengthen and sustain a healthcare preparedness and response system within Central Florida and to assist Emergency Management and ESF 8 (Health and Medical) with preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation activities related to healthcare disaster operations.
Joining the Coalition ensures that your voice is heard in decision-making regarding resource allocations and utilization. As a member, you will receive information on training, exercises and projects that may be of interest to you. Membership is free and it only takes a moment to complete the charter.
We’re looking for volunteers for the Central Florida Disaster Medical Team (CFDMT), a group of volunteer responders whose purpose is to stabilize, treat, and transfer, as appropriate, patients during a disaster or during a community-sponsored event, such as air shows, marathons, and concerts. The CFDMT consists of trained /credentialed command staff, physicians, physician assistants, nurses, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, and administrative and logistics personnel. Team members will work in some unique environments with some of our area’s outstanding first responders. Most importantly you can help treat and save the lives of fellow community members. This is your opportunity to be part of a valued team during events and emergency situations, when it truly matters most.
As a nonprofit organization, funding to stay operational is always at the top of our list. Your generous donation ensures that the Coalition will be there to prepare and support the healthcare system in disasters.
